Hitler's Thirty Days to Power: January 1933 by Henry Ashby Turner, Jr. (£23.00)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780747530046]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Every one has heard of Hitler. Most know he was the dictator of Germany who caused the Second World War and the slaughter of millions of Jews. But how Hider got power is another matter. Few understand the way in which his dictatorship came about. Because Germany was a republic when Hitler became chancellor, many assume that he was democratically elected by a majority of the German people. Such was not, however, the case. His rise to power was far more complicated and, above all, more chancy. It was, in fact, a very near thing that could have been thwarted at numerous points. Much of Hitler’s story has been ably recounted in previous books, but no one has yet subjected to thorough scrutiny the dramatic events of the crucial month of January 1933, at the end of which Hitler became head of the German government. To tell that story is the task of this book.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". [XII] 255 pages.

Its richly interwoven tapestry of text, maps and illustrations brings sharply into focus our century’s main themes and underlying problems. Richard Overy’s compelling and analytical text takes the world from the pomp of Europe’s colonial heyday and the cataclysm of the First World War through the Great Depression, the Second World War and the Cold War to the uncertain stumblings of the New World Order. Special attention is paid to the themes and challenges which have faced us throughout the century — the environment, health, science, leisure and technology. With over 200 full-colour maps and more than 300 photographs, the book is a visual feast and a work of substantial scholarship.”Notes: Size: 4to Royal (32 x 25cm Approx.). 239 pages.

The Pope's Maestro by Sir Gilbert Levine (£19.00)Publisher: Jossey-Bass — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780470490655]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Includes the unopened CD-Rom to the rear pastedown. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The Pope’s Maestro tells the inspirational story of a most improbable friendship between the American conductor Sir Gilbert Levine and His Holiness Pope John Paul II. Together they collaborated closely, over a period of more than seventeen years, using music to heal centuries-old religious wounds.

Maestro Levine created and conducted a series of ground-breaking, internationally broadcast concerts. These musical events brought artistic form to Pope John Paul II’s fervent wish to forge an historic bridge first between the Roman Catholic Church and the Jewish people, and then, after 9/11, with the Muslim world as well. These efforts culminated in the Papal Concert to Commemorate the Holocaust in 1994 and the Papal Concert of Reconciliation in 2004.

During his years as Music Director of the Krakow Philharmonic, Sir Gilbert had an insider’s view of Eastern Europe’s inexorable journey from Communism to freedom. And in the years following, he experienced the world of Pope John Paul in a way few lay people, and even fewer Jews, have ever been honored to do. That work, paradoxically enough, deepened Sir Gilbert’s own Jewish belief and practice.

The Pope’s Maestro tells the story of the compelling musical and spiritual journey of two men of different faiths who found in music the power to foster peace and unity in a profoundly divided world.”

Warworks: Women, Photography and the Iconography of War by Val Williams (£18.00)Publisher: London: Virago Press Limited — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853815918]Condition: Very Good. Light creasing to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 11th January - 19th March 1995. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “One of Britain’s most noted photographic curators and historians, Val Williams explores the myriad ways in which women photographers have used war to express major issues in contemporary art and society. In addressing collective memory, gender, sexuality and mass communication, she removes war photography from its niche as reportage and places it as a central channel for the contemporary imagination.

The Holocaust is looked at very differently in the works of Lee Miller and Rachel Lichtenstein; parody is present in Martha Rosler’s Bringing the War Home (House Beautiful) and in Anna Fox’s Weekend Wargames ; Deborah Blight’s Battlefield Panoramas explore war as lost memories; Barbara Alper’s Gulf Channel examines the new reporters, satellite TV; and Moira Mclver looks at men dressed for conflict. The photographs and accompanying essays provide a challenging dimension to photographic and cultural history. “

A Garden of Eden in Hell: The Life of Alice Herz-Sommer by Melissa Mu¨ller & Reinhard Piechocki (£13.50)Publisher: London: Macmillan — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0230528023]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Musical scores; Portrait to the frontispiece; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Alice Herz-Sommer was born in 1903 in Prague, the Prague of the Hapsburgs and of Franz Kafka, a family friend. Musically very gifted, by her mid-teens Alice was one of the best-known pianists in Prague. But as the Nazis swept across Europe, her comfortable, bourgeois world began to crumble around her, as anti-Jewish feeling not only intensified but was legitimised.

In 1942, Alice’s mother was deported. Desperately unhappy, she resolved to learn Chopin’s 24 Etudes — the most technically demanding piano pieces she knew — and the complex but beautiful music saved her sanity. A year later, she, too — together with her husband and their six-year-old son — was deported to a concentration camp. But even in Theresienstadt, music was her salvation and in the course of more than a hundred concerts she gave her fellow-prisoners hope in a world of pain and death.

This is her remarkable story, but it is also the story of a mother’s struggle to create a happy childhood for her beloved only son in the midst of atrocity and barbarism. Of 15,000 children sent to the camp, Raphael was one of the 130 who survived. Today, Alice Herz-Sommer lives in London and she still plays the piano every day.”

Learning to Glow: A Nuclear Reader by Edited by John Bradley (£13.00)Publisher: University of Arizona Press — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816519560]Condition: Good+. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Atomic energy has been cloaked in secrecy by government, industry, and the military, but for many Americans the effects of radiation have been less than secret. Just ask the radium workers in Ottawa, Illinois, the “downwinders” of Utah, or unsuspecting veterans of the Gulf War. When told from the perspective of ordinary people, nuclear history takes on a much different tone from that of the tranquil voices of authority who always told us we had nothing to fear. In Learning to Glow, writers such as Scott Russell Sanders, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver reveal the psychic and emotional fallout of the Cold War and of subsequent developments in nuclear science. Here are stories of and by ordinary people who have suffered the consequences of the decisions made by those in power — stories that will challenge readers to re-examine their preconceptions about the way we deal with issues of nuclear arms and radioactive waste.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 317 pages.

Having failed to find Gregory, she decides to stay on to do what she can for the France she has loved since childhood. She and the reader are drawn ever deeper into the lives of assimilated French Jews — the children Andre and Jacob whose parents have already been sent to the death camps, and the Levades, father and son. Though ultimately powerless to help, Charlotte nevertheless learns a far deeper understanding of herself and her own family through them.”Tags: extraordinary underground occupation resistance operations historical redemptive 1939-1945 movements microcosm holocaust collusion narrative occupied scottish shocking altruism stories england fiction courage english history romance british special missing general french modern second france action german airman woman agony black local women world years group texts young nazi chie love gone and its the who war has

Resisting McDonaldization by Edited by Barry Smart (£9.50)Publisher: London, Thousand Oaks & New Delhi: SAGE Publications — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0761955186]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Resisting McDonaldization brings together leading European, American and Australasian social and cultural analysts to engage in a critical appraisal of the McDonaldization thesis. This thesis argued that the dimensions of rationality characteristic of the organization of the fast-food industry in general, and McDonald’s in particular, notably a preoccupation with efficiency, calculability, predictability and control, along with associated problematic consequences, have become increasingly prominent features of contemporary social life.

In these specially commissioned contributions, the authors discuss the roots of the McDonaldization thesis, the rationalization of late modern life, the effects of increasing cultural commodification, the continuing prominence of American cultural and economic imperialism, and the impact of globalization on social and cultural life. The strengths, weaknesses and analytical potential of the McDonaldization thesis are clearly evaluated, and the key features and irrational consequences of rationalization are identified and critically explored.

Resisting McDonaldization enlarges our understanding of how everyday life is structured by new standards of bureaucratic control and performance-related criteria. It will be invaluable reading for students, teachers and researchers in the areas of sociology, cultural studies and politics. ”

Wartime Courage: Stories of Extraordinary Courage by Ordinary People in World War Two by Gordon Brown (£9.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747596077]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “In these eleven stories of courage in the Second World War, Prime Minister Gordon Brown pays tribute to the heroism of that great generation of British men and women who took up arms against tyranny and overcame it. Some are accounts of decisive action taken in the searing heat of battle: early in the war Lieutenant Richard Stannard, RNR, showed steely calm and ingenuity during the retreat from Norway in 1940, winning a VC; while on D-Day, Company Sergeant Major Hollis of the Green Howards won his by storming a pillbox alone, paving the way for a crucial advance to higher ground. Other stories tell of great danger faced again and again: Graham Hayes and Geoffrey Appleyard of the Small Scale Raiding Force (forerunner of the SBS) carried out daring and innovative actions over many months off Africa and along the Normandy coast; while John Bridge, a physics teacher turned mine- and bomb-disposal officer, repeatedly practised his nerve-racking skills for six years, always aware that there were no second chances if things went wrong. Behind enemy lines the sangfroid and sheer endurance of clandestine operatives like Major Hugh Seagrim in occupied Burma and Violette Szabo in occupied France showed a daunting, almost mysterious form of courage; and on the home front two railwaymen risked their lives to save a small country town from devastation when their ammunition train caught fire.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".
